    GrappleForks for 1025r?

    Time for you guys to help spend more of my money---which you're quite good at. Are you getting a kickback from JD?

    From what I've read on the forum, it sound like the Titan Forks are the way to go. I see they also offer grapples for the H120 loader. Any words of wisdom as to what I should be looking for in forks and grapple?

    I concur with Stan. I have the Artillian forks and firmly believe they are the best. They are more expensive than their heavier competitors though. Artillians grapple mounts right on the same backrest that come with his forks. For those that appreciate elegant design, not for those with a tight budget. The grapple is on my wish list, unfortunately behind many other more immediate needs.

    Gleaned...Randy might get a tear in his eye! I'm guessing this gentleman doesn't want to spend the fortune it would take for the forks, grapple or two and hydraulic kit. Gotta be a few grand at least.

    While Titan has a few happy customers here, the vast majority of members here have Artillian products, including myself. There has been many cases of customer and product issues with Titan. Please do some research so you can reach your own conclusion.

    Please look at the weight difference between Artillian and Titan. There is a 170# unit vs 500# per each Web site. (rounded #) that is a selling point for me.

    When I got my tractor last July I ordered Titan 42" forks. For the amount of time I use them they are fine. They are heavy but mounted right on mt h120. Has far has a grapple taking time and researching them I will probably go with the grapple from Compact Tractor Accessories out of Wisconsin. I have their 60" blade and am very happy with the quality. Good luck

    From what I've read on the forum, it sound like the Titan Forks are the way to go.
    I'm so bad. I confused Artillian for Titan. That being said, there is a whopping price difference between them. I read through a number of reviews on palletforks.com, a distributor of Titan, and the only negative I encountered was something about a weld burr on the inside of a 2" receiver.

    Yup, I did note the significant weight difference between the two. According to the JD specs for the H120 Loader, it has a 512 pound lift capacity. They didn't specify if that was including the weight of the bucket or not.

    The lightest set of Artillian forks comes in at 185 pounds. The Artillian Grapple comes in at another 90, which is probably close to a wash by the time you pull the forks from the frame. However, to be effective, you'd need to likely add two rake sections at 40 pound each. So you're grapple implement comes in at 265 pounds or half the capacity of the loader.

    The Titan 36" pallet fork frame comes in at 108 pounds. Adding for the forks, we'd probably be about the same as the Artillian. A 48" Titan Grapple comes in at 450 pounds. Leaving 62 pounds of lift capacity. You're not going to do much with that.

    So if I want a Grapple, Artillian is the only unit that leaves at least some workable lift capacity. Perhaps I could get by without the two rake attachments.
